    bartender VERY friendly & informative. He got my drink order and brought it to me as I waited for my colleagues to show. he then switched out with a server. the server was not very good. i had to be getting up and getting drinks at the bar because he was more busy doing other things, like chatting. he dictated where we sat and asked us to keep that order to make sure he knew who was ordering what. he wasn't very friendly and dropped our fried zucchini and had to place an additional order. i know people make mistakes but telling patrons what to do and where to sit is unacceptable. i won't say i'll never go there again...but I certainly would not recommend Nimbus to othdk

    Our waiter Luke - was extremely nice and helpfull and a good sport all in all. The Fried Jalapenos and cream cheese dip were the best - Pretzel was great also. They do Pork items really well. Happy hour prices are what will keep me coming back.

    Decent beer selection, especially the micros. Menu is classic stuff - hamburgers, fish 'n' chips, etc. but it was all very good. Our server was very good and it was quiet enough so we could talk in a normal volume. We had a great time.

    The onion rings were very good. The beers were ok not really unique. The chocolate lava wasnt cooked all the way and they really need to put some ice cream with it. French fries were school cafeteria good.

    This place was hopping for happy hour. I really like that happy hour lasts until 7pm, a lot of people that work can't get out until 6pm when other are shutting down their happy hour menu. Making a reservation was a good idea if ou arrive at 6pm on Friday night.

    Dined on 8/2/2012
    The layout was not at all what we expected to find for a brewery. Very unique layout. The floor was pretty messy as if no one had time to sweep it up. But we weren't expecting anything too fancy.Service was fine. We will certainly come back to grab a drink. Really enjoyed the food and the portion size.

    Very loud, the entertainment was in the dining area, made it hard to visit with my friends...often found myself shouting to be heard. Server seemed to loose focus, often had to re-order coctails before actually receiving order.

    This was 2nd visit to Nimbus. Both time service was very slow but food is good. Improver werver efficiency. I think you need more servers. When the server was present, she did a good job.

    Heavy with the salt! Hubby and I decided to try this restaurant as we're always looking for new lunch spots. Our first impression should have told us to walk out as hard rock music was blaring and we tend to prefer places where we can have conversations while dining. Hubby had the B.W. Horseshoe (supposedly a house favorite) and I had the South West Chicken Salad. His entire meal was very heavily salted to the point where he could not eat his meal. The server graciously offered an exchange but Hubby was already beginning to feel the effects of the sodium so he turned it down. Also, the bread in the open faced sandwich was supposed to be toasted and the bread had not been toasted at all. My salad was just borderline okay. The chicken was ver

    The food was great and everybody was nice. The waiter just didn't take care of us and I had to ask for more water when he came back to see if my wife wanted another beer. Didn't even offer us dessert and check on our food after we were done eating.

    I made reservations for our group of 11 for a Friday evening. Our table was ready, however the hostess just pointed to it and didn't walk us over. Our waitress took drink orders pretty quickly, but after that we didn't see her much and usually had to flag her down for things. A couple orders were wrong, but everyone seemed to like the food. My cousin and I shared a pizza and salad. The salad did not make it out until 20 mins after everyone else's food arrived. We ate most of the bland Chicken & Avocado pizza before the salad came. I will give it another shot, but there is definite room for improvement considering the Tucson locations are great.

    I have liked Nimbus since visiting their Tucson warehouse/brewery off I-10 many years ago, and I was pleased to see them in Scottsdale. Great beer, enjoyed the food, had excellent service, but I'm not a fan of all the sports TVs. They were visible from pretty much everywhere, and I don't like TV while enjoying a date with my wife. However, I realize that could be a selling point for some, so just be advised. Good experience overall, and definitely recommend.

    First time here and it was pretty good. Read about the poor service from others, but we did not experience this. If there was any slowness, it came from the kitchen. Our server was always in view waiting for our food. Ambiance was not that great, but this was mainly due to the lighting. Way too bright. Beer is excellent and the food was very good. The only complaint with the food was that the Monkey Burn (Fried Jalapeno slices) had way too much batter on them. They need to come up with a lighter batter. We will come back.

    Despite somewhat negative reviews regarding the service, our party of 6 decided to give this new restaurant a try and were pleasantly surprised that the service was excellent and the food was pretty good. It was Saturday night and they also had an excellent jazz combo. Will definitely go back.

    Too noisy inside; too smoky on the patio (we were seated on the outer rim and it was still intolerable). Their OT blurb asks you to invite "...the entire family to enjoy the atmosphere...". Well, maybe, if your toddlers are hearing-impaired chain smokers.

    We went for lunch and sat on the patio which is very large and nice. Everyone enjoyed their beer made in the Nimbus brewery. The food was OK. One person said their Reuben was very good. One person said the fish (in the fish & chips) was too salty. And the pulled pork was just OK. I think the place has good potential but needs to step it up with the food a bit.

    this was the 3rd time we have been there and were very dissappointed with the service. they seem very disorganized and seem to forget that there are customers to feed and cater to. First time was very good and we couldn't wait to go back. Took out of town guests and told them to expect a great evening. The waitress disappeared and we had to ask for the meals from someone else and the orders were not filled properly. So we thought we would give it one more chance to see if that was just an off night the second time. Well it was worse!! It seems that the kitchen doesn't read the orders and meals don't get prepared as ordered with some special needs. Probably won't go back and will stop bringing our friends after raving about the place
